M&K Sound V Series Compact Subwoofers
V also stands for Vindication, definitive proof of the right-ness of M&K Sound’s innovative ideas and vision as pioneers in the field of subwoofers.
In the case of the M&K Sound V Series trio of ultra-compact subwoofers, it also stands for Validation of concept and execution. Following the extended research and development process that led to the groundbreaking M&K Sound X Series of subwoofers, the all-new V Series draws heavily on knowledge and technology derived directly from that range of market leading, self-powered bass systems.
V for Vision
Too often, music and movie lovers feel forced to choose between larger speakers that detract from the beauty and style of the living room and more compact models that seriously compromise the home entertainment experience.
After introducing the satellite/subwoofer configuration more than 40 years ago, M&K Sound allows film and music enthusiasts to have it both ways, combining attractive, compact high performance main speakers with handsome, compact subwoofers for decorator- friendly room integration.
The M&K Sound V Series offers exceptional flexibility of choice to suit any budget and room size: V8 with an 8” woofer and 150 Watts of built-in amplifier power, V10 with a 10” woofer and 250 Watts and V12 with a 12” woofer and 300 Watts. The clean lines and smooth, rounded edges of V Series subwoofers are available in elegant Satin Black or Satin White with matching grille cloth and will be a discrete, stylish addition to any living space.
V Series woofers are built on a stamped steel basket and incorporate a pulp cone, custom NBR surround, fiberglass dust cap and a newly designed motor system featuring an aluminum voice coil former and undercut, extended pole piece. The drive unit is capable of long, controlled excursion for extended deep bass with exceptional authority and precision.
Major design features borrowed from the top of the line M&K Sound X Series include aluminum AC shorting rings installed in the magnet system and a flared, vented pole design to effectively reduce compression and distortion.
These devices make valuable contributions to the effortless bass transparency of the M&K Sound V Series. Sealed enclosures ensure exceptional transient response (a.k.a. fast, “punchy” bass) with minimal distortion. The elimination of a port opening also enhances flexibility of placement for optimal deep bass performance.
Again drawing on technology from the state of the subwoofer art X Series, V Series subwoofers are driven by Class D power amplifiers with fully discrete analogue input stages ideally integrated with the enclosure, crossover and woofer.
